Treasures from Chatsworth, Episode 4: The Lewinski Photo Archive
Between 1940 to 1970, photographer Jorge Lewinski took hundreds of images of important postwar artists in their studios: Francis Bacon, Bridget Riley, Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore among many others. “He recorded people, but he did it in such a way that gave you so much of an insight into the artist’s way of being,” says the Earl of Burlington, who acquired the Lewinski Archive for Chatsworth. In this episode, the Earl explains that the passion for art that he inherited from his ancestors has inspired him to become not only a collector himself but also an artist.
